Shelby Russell-Hays -

Shelby Russell-Hays’s personal history with adoption sparked an interest in a career in Social Services from an early age. After graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology from Pepperdine University in 2010, she immediately began working for a private child placing agency in Pierce County as a Foster Care Case Manager. In this position, Shelby provided direct support to Children’s Administration (now DCYF), children in out-of-home care, and their Caregivers.

A few years later, Shelby became employed with Children’s Administration in Pierce County as a Placement Coordinator; eventually transferring to the Vancouver office in Clark County in the same position. In Fall 2018, Shelby accepted her current position at the Alliance with a focus on serving the Caregiving Community through educational support.

Shelby’s passion for this work is rooted in ensuring safe spaces for children in out-of-home care; although, she believes that a true sense of safety includes cultivating an inner feeling of safety within each child. Because this process can be long and complex, Shelby and her team strive to empower those who care for these remarkable children by equipping them with the knowledge and tools that create connection and promote healing. She is grateful to work alongside others at the Alliance who share in her passion and inspire her, every day, to stay curious!

Holly Bond -

Holly Bond is a development and facilitation specialist with the Alliance.  In this role she serves caregivers through developing and facilitating curriculum that enables them to build and enhance the skills they need to support children affected by trauma.

Holly joined the Alliance after many years of supporting caregivers as a licensor in the Tacoma area.  Prior to that, she worked directly with youth who had experienced significant trauma and loss.  Before entering the child welfare field, Holly worked as an advocate for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault.  Her early career began in the HIV prevention and education field.

Holly received her Master of Science (MS) in training and development from the University of Louisville.  This program provided additional structure and foundation for her mission of mentoring and training adults.

In recent years, Holly has focused on trauma-informed somatic and mindful practices, completing 500+ hours of training in Mindfulness-Based Yoga, earning a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT-500) credential, alongside achieving Qualified Teacher (QT) status of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), an evidenced-based curriculum, through the University of California at San Diego’s Mindfulness-Based Professional Training Institute.
